Is There Something That I Should Do If I Am Participating By Phone And Have A Witness?
Yes. If you are participating by telephone and will be having a witness at your location, you need to make arrangements to have either a speaker phone or a separate telephone for that individual. This is necessary in order for you to hear the questions that your witness is being asked by the administrative law judge and the other party.
If your witness will be at a different location, you need to contact the hearing office prior to the hearing and provide it with that witness's telephone number so that a telephone conference call can be arranged.
